MILANO – It was the latest impressive performance by a resurgent Matteo Darmian whose splendid form was on display once again in the crucial victory against Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 5 in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League.
“It was a tough game today. We saw that in the first half when we couldn’t break the deadlock, but we didn’t let that faze us. We did well to stay focused and keep attacking with the right determination and desire,” the winger told Inter TV.
“We knew the goal would come sooner or later and we picked up three key points in our Champions League campaign. We made important progress last year and had a very strong mentality linked to reaching the targets that we’d set and we’re doing that this year as well, with Inzaghi carrying on the work that we started last year and crowned by winning the Scudetto.
“It’s true we’ve dropped some points along the way, but we’ve always trained hard as a team in the right way and the performances have always been positive. In our last two games, we’ve picked up crucial results, but we can’t stop here. From tomorrow we’ll turn our attention to Venezia because we have a tough match ahead of us, with few days to recover in between. In any case, we’re used to that and we’ll all do our bit, regardless of who takes to the pitch. We want to try to win every game between now and the end of the season.”
